What's the story, Jerry ???


4/16/1978
Koosman vs Grimsley
Mets 3, Expos 0

8 shutout innings for 1st win of season
Chalk one up for New York's veteran lefthander Jerry Koosman, who pitched 8 shutout innings vs the young Expos, then handed the ball over to Skip Lockwood who closed it out with some anxious moments in the 9th.  New York carried a 1-0 lead into the 7th when "the Dude", John Stearns hit a 2 run shot to make it 3-0.  Montreal had plenty of opportunities to score in this game, but Koosman came up big every time he had to.  Kooz fanned 7 and gave up 5 hits to notch his first win of the season.  Lockwood, who got out of a self created jam in the 9th, recorded his 3rd save.  New York takes this weekend series to even their record at 5-5.  Montreal's is also sitting at .500 (4-4).
